January 27, 2012 12:30PM

The priciest unit to hit the market this week is songwriter and Clinton pardonee ex-wife Denise Rich’s 785 Fifth Avenue spread, which is asking $65 million, as the New York Post reported this morning. According to the listing, with Bonnie Evans, Noble Black and Chaz Levi at the Corcoran Group, this is largest Fifth Avenue penthouse ever to come on the market. The home, at 60th Street, offers three terraces, one reportedly large enough to hold 200 people, as well as seven bedrooms, 11 baths and three kitchens, the listing says.

The second most expensive unit to come online is an eighth floor co-op at the tony 88 Central Park West, at 69th Street. Unit #8N9W has park views, high ceilings and five bedrooms, according to the listing. Kirk Henckels and Jennifer Callahan at Stribling & Associates have the listing.

The third priciest home is #7A at 1 Sutton Place South, between 56th and 57th streets. The pre-war apartment looks out over the East River and has four bedrooms and 4.5 baths, according to the listing. It is being offered by Laurence Kaiser at Key-Ventures with an asking price of $15 million.

The cheapest unit to hit the market this week is unit #3L at 301 East 63rd Street, which is asking $100,000. The price for the studio apartment is marked down, the listing says, because of relatively high maintenance fees of $1573.36 per month. The building, at Second Avenue, has a renovated lobby with full-time doorman, bike room and other storage. Mattie Weiser at Warburg Realty has the listing for the co-op.

The second least expensive unit is #16L in the same building. The asking price for the studio is $125,000. The co-op can be used as a pied a terre and guarantors are allowed, the listing says. Mattie Weiser at Warburg has that listing as well.

The third cheapest home is on the third floor at 41 Convent Avenue, between 129th and 130th streets in West Harlem. The asking price is $149,000. It’s being marketed as a one-bedroom in a “quiet doorman building.” Robert Hicks at Weichert Realtors is listing the co-op, which has unspecified income restrictions. — Guelda Voien
